such a honorable crusade get over it. If you want to have an intelligent conversation about the lack of punch resistance calling out great but, shot fighters isn't the place to start. Every sport has its stupid fans, just ignore em.

Fantastic thread with excellent research as usual, MM. I'm currently torn between picking Barry & W Silva, but as you say, as soon as Gracie got hit, it was time for his pillow & blanket. Tough one.

You don't understand what a glass jaw is. You flip flop between shopworn fighter's and unproven hype jobs and class them as the same thing. Wrong.

LOL at calling the years result's with three months to go.

Funny how this Joe Boxer rides your nuts - do you email each other for moral support?

Semi agree with this list, mainly cuz there's a difference between a fighter on the decline and a fighter with a glass jaw. The older you get, the more soft your jaw gets, fact of life (with a few exceptions of course). Crocop and wlanderlei never had 'glass jaws' until they started their decline.

Griffen can definitley be considered to have a glass jaw sine he's not really past his "prime."

That's what many of you aren't getting. Some guys go down due to years of accumulated punishment softening their Mandibles and others were genetically ****ed from the get-go. The "why" doesn't matter, if you get dropped or KOed easily and repeatedly, you have a Glass Jaw. That's all there is to it.

And I'd beg to differ on Silva. He never had a good Chin, simply good recovery time, and that's gone now.

Having just watched some of the aforemtioned fighters on Youtube, what can I say? Excellent list for a start. MMA is full of Glass Jawed jokes and that is not up for debate. At one point when I was watching Forrest Griffin's Glass Jaw getting shattered I nearly threw up.

Absolutely appaling display of Chin.

Great Chinchecking MM. Keep up the sterling work.

The more I think about it, the more I'm starting to go with Wanderlei, as well, because he's got an illustrious career full of embarrassing KOs and this last one was downright disgraceful. Getting sparked out in twenty-seven seconds and so badly that once he regained some of his faculties he attempted to put on a guard clinic against the ref is pitiful and the fact that a journeyman with subpar striking skills managed to do it made it even worse. Yeah, for my money it's probably going to be between Silva, Griffin, Okami, and Gracie and I'll whittle it down as the year closes unless the next three months brings some outstanding shattered glass.

Good to see that my Chinchecking efforts are paying off in getting more Chincheckers to realize that MMA is rapidly becoming the place that most proves the theory that Glass Jaws DO exist!

So, I'm taking it that Griffin is so far your favorite for GJDOTY? I'm leaning that way myself but there's so many China Chins that making a pick becomes difficult.

ya but its unfair to compare people who've gone most of their career not having a glass jaw and aer just getting them in their last days, to hypejobs who've always had them since the beginning.

Nah, there is no way Arlovski gives up the wet-paper-chin title, he's been champ forever. That kind of career experience makes up for a lot.
